thickening to stabilize antiperspirants in roll on

edited January 2015 in Formulating

what is the best thickening to stabilize emulsion with Aluminum Sesquichlorohydrate or Aluminum Zirconium Pentachlorohydrate?
I use typical construction with Steareth-2 and Steareth 21. After several formulation I have a quite stable emulsion for 2 months in 45C.

Please advice.


  • If you already have a stable formula, then why still look for a stabilizer?

    You might want to try Emulgade NLB from Cognis. This emulsifier is made specifically for deodorant applications.
  • thanks for Your advise, but I have to have stable emulsion for 3 months not less. Lately I used Polyderm PPI CO 200 from Aston, but perhaps the best solution is to try  Structure XL?
  • I agree with the Structure XL. It might also help in the reduction of drying time of your deodorant.
